Sunderland’s WhisperDry Hush

Sunderland of Scotland has taken golf waterproofs to a completely new weather-beating level with its latest WhisperDry Hush jacket, which features an integrated hood to combat the very worst of weather.

While many golfers invest in good waterproofs – only to be let down by their absorbent cotton caps when it pours – the WhisperDry Hush converts instantly into a rainproof ‘hoodie’ ensuring 100% dryness on the head.

And gone are the days when that annoying trickle of rain creeps under the collar of your jacket and down your back. When unfurled and pulled tight, the neatly attached foldaway hood completely covers the neck area.

As expected from the renowned outerwear specialists, Sunderland’s WhisperDry Hush not only delivers outstanding water repellency and breathability. Its 4-way stretch construction offers superb freedom of movement while the knitted tricot lining provides exceptional comfort and warmth.

With a RRP of £170, sizes S-XXXL and two colours to choose from (Black/Red & Black/Blue) it is packed with additional features to make it one of the best golf waterproofs in the market, including:

  • Ultra-lightweight comfort
  • Sealed seam construction
  • Knitted tricot comfort lining
  • Water repellent front zip
  • External chest pocket
  • Water repellent handwarmer zipped pockets
  • Droptail hem with twin shock cord adjustment
  • Half elasticated comfort cuff
  • Cuff Velcro tab adjusters
  • Internal pocket
  • Custom embroidery access zip
  • Sunderland of Scotland logo on left sleeve and centre back neck

Said Sunderland marketing director, Brian Mair: “Our ‘scrunch-free’ WhisperDry™ fabric makes the jacket the quietest waterproof in the world, because it is so soft and stretchable. And now the innovative addition of a hood is taking total rain protection levels to new territory for a golf jacket, as well as looking extremely contemporary.”

Matching trousers are also available in black, with leg lengths 29”, 31” and 33” and waist sizes S-XXXL.

Sunderland of Scotland’s 2012/13 collection is one of the most technically-advanced ever produced by the famous weatherwear brand.

The company’s extensive new range is tightly focused around products that are deliberately engineered to provide hi-tech protection against specific elements – with different fabric technologies incorporated into each of its main four Rainwear, Windwear, Coldwear and Sunwear categories.
